OH - I'm in Love!!!

How could anyone resist falling in love with this little 'cutie'.
Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge this week is hand made bows. I used the Magnolia Alva with flower image and used pastels to colour her. The red paper is from a download (I had to play around with it to alter the colour slightly, the beige I stamped with a 'freebie' from a magazine and highlighted the flowers with a white gel pen. I agonized for hours what to use in the top left and bottom right corners - it needed something to take the eye to the center and not let it wander off the page. I had every embellishment known to man spread over my table the floor, the sofa (oh what a mess!!) but in the end it was two simple little photo corners that did the trick.

Materials
Image - Magnolia - Alva with flower
Derwent pastels
EK Success Retro flower punch
Spacer, brad and ribbons from stash

Rica, another beautiful creation! I haven't posted in a whilebut I've been in awe of all your beautiful, creative creations!

I really love your color combo for this card and the intricateness of the DP papers, the pop of the belli's and your coloring of Alva. I wish I could I could color 1/8 as good as you do!

Keep up the awe inspiring designs! They are always a welcome part of my day!
